The World’s Easiest Quilter’s Knot – really!

July 25, 2015

I know I can’t be the only one to have never mastered the Quilter’s Knot. The only way I was ever taught was what I call the “magic method” because that’s what it seemed like to me! 

It involves wrapping the thread magically around a few fingers and there’s a knot. (I’m even a knitter – I can make a slipknot with my eyes closed while standing on my head spitting wooden nickles. Well. Maybe real nickels – I wouldn’t want a splinter.) Anyway! 

I was always that sad, sad person trying to do a bunch of overhand knots in a row to make a knot big enough to stop when it hit the cotton. Of course, those overhand knots never land in the same place, so you use half the thread before you get enough of a knot. 


Check this video out, and I’ll demonstrate the Quilter’s Knot technique that I teach to ALL my beginning quilting students (and I tell them – honestly – that it’s worth the price of admission to the class!).

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

It’s time for our last block!  I cut this one out quickly with my Accuquilt cutter and the 6” Qube.  Many people think that with a 6” Qube, you are limited to 6” blocks, but I hope this quilt along has shown that there are many possibilities when you combine the shapes.  This 12” block has over 70 pieces!  The center section is a bit smaller than the other blocks so I did end up cutting the small triangles and rectangles with a ruler and rotary cutter.  Here is the block all cut and ready to be sewn.
